Sustainable Print

Here at ICE we are constantly working behind the scenes to provide the best solutions for our clients. However, it’s not always obvious that we work equally as hard towards sourcing environmentally sustainable solutions too. Our work with Amey has made us self-proclaimed recycling know-it-alls, and we want to shout about it!

Business cards, postcards, posters, and menus are only a few examples of printed goods which are often laminated in order to create a long-lasting, high-quality product. You probably come across a countless number of these items every day! Laminated products such as these are unfortunately not recyclable as 2 different processes are used to break down each component; water to break down paper and heat to break down plastic.
When the alarming Blue Planet II episode “Our Blue Planet” was aired last year, highlighting the terrifying impact humankind’s consumption of plastic is having on the world’s oceans and marine life, it sent shockwaves throughout the world. Not least through the ICE Plus team, and in an effort to make a difference, we have taken the decision to phase out laminations and aim to make environmentally friendly decisions by utilising biodegradable alternatives.

The Hotel & Hospitality industry generates a large amount of printed products, and having worked with many businesses in the sector, ICE are keen to make attainable green choices in our printing in the hope that it will contribute to the use of non-recyclable materials being significantly reduced.

Some of these innovative alternatives manufacture printed products which are made with highly refined wood pulp, so at the end of their life, they can be recycled. This does not affect the quality; a bright, slick, top-notch result is achieved.

Our wonderful print team at ICE Plus will be investigating additional solutions in the coming months, so watch this space!
